“VS” by the ambient / drone project CASSEL starts with a time-stretched drone that sounds completely saturated by a codeine IV drip. A bass line moving like the expansion of the Mariana Trench. As percussion is added in,”VS” takes the shape of a post-punk track slowed down to the atomic level. This effect is amplified as overdriven guitars and a steady percussive pulse slowly take their place as the tracks center piece. “VS” is an intriguing into to this little known experimental project.
